Step 1

Line your box with a pillowcase, then fold the opening of the pillowcase over the edges of the box. We recommend gluing it in place to secure.

Tip: This may need trimming to allow space for the twine, depending on the size of your box.

Glue the end of the twine to a bottom corner of the box to secure.
